Roses and Daggers

Domestic violence. Abuse. Its a vicious cycle that will always repeat itself, over and over. I’ve condensed this cycle to three phases: The Cupcake phase, the Eggshell phase and the Flash Point. The names give a pretty good indication about what each phase pertains to. In an abusive situation, it’s never just constant abuse. The […]

Signing Up — I was approaching high school graduation in 1957 with the military draft still in effect, a left-over from the Korean War. I had done well in high school, and had been accepted by two universities, but had no firm idea what I wanted to do with myself for a career. In my […]

The Enigma Garden

The dark storm clouds poored rain down like an old dog drooling. Moisture was a constant here. The heat as well. And mud. More hot mud than you could ever have imagined, then doubled. It permitted everything, clothes, socks, guns and boots. Keeping things that needed to be clean, clean, was a battle that was […]

[poet-badge] Nikki stretched out her legs in front of her and casually flicked a mosquito away from her smooth, tanned skin. The Pine Barrens were beautiful this time of year, the air fresh and clean, so different from her home in the city. She’d been hiking for hours, and the sun was beginning to sag […]

Background photography by Rhonda Coe    Part 1 I could feel it following me again. Another just like me and at each transformation into this beast I had now become, it lingered a short distance from me. I could never see it physically but could smell its scent as it tended to remain around me for […]

      Three weeks in the books, another 15 to go before we bet to #TheBracket. Unfortunately LEAGUE VILLIAN used some Sunday night Braves magic to remain undefeated, the only 3-0 team in the land (Bears and Bad Dudes are at 2-0-1). There’s also only one 0-3 in the land and that is last […]

Walking Humbly

I am aware that my story and path is countercultural and may cause discomfort among some with rigid opinions one way or another. I am sharing it not as a prescriptive statement of what I believe others should believe or do, but rather as where I believe I have been led by the Holy Spirit […]

Musings

She must be doing it right now. The eccentric, gorgeous rockstar. Captivating young, guileless men with her magical song playing. Binding them under the spell her eyes cast. Luring them behind that curtain and turning their bodies into her play toys. She must have done it with over a hundred men. Strangers, with their hands […]

Reigokai: Isekai Translations

—Holy Light Capital: Highest Class Inn, Ortemis. It is the sister store of the highest class restaurant, Artemis, that nobles and a number of wealthy people use. This one also has an incredibly high hurdle and the cost to use is equally high. At the Ortemis counter, a pair of adventurers had finished paying the […]

Sarah is a friend from Milwaukee, younger sister to my best friend, who is so unique that the space she carves in your heart is undefinable and unable to be filled by anyone else. Sarah […]

Kicking Back and Watching the 2019 Masters Glued to my Chair On April 14, 2019 I was glued to my chair in our family room watching Tiger Woods win his fifth Masters’ golf title and his 15th career victory in a “Major.” I certainly wasn’t alone as 18.3 million viewers joined me at the peak coverage […]

April 12, 2014 The sun begins to set on an uncharacteristically cool spring day. The breeze lingers far too long, unwilling to let go and make room for warmer, balmier moments, desperate to hold on and believe in the eternity of a moment. As I sat there on an unassuming park bench alongside Oscar, I […]

Musings of Hope

No one likes the waiting room. Pale colors shade the wall, a TV is playing an old movie, magazines litter the side tables, people near you are either glued to their phones or staring into space or complaining at the front desk. And, in many waiting rooms, there is one thing on every guest’s minds: […]

Probably Dance

The current problem with computers was well articulated in the piece The Machine Stops by the late Oliver Sacks: I cannot get used to seeing myriads of people in the street peering into little boxes or holding them in front of their faces, walking blithely in the path of moving traffic, totally out of touch […]
